Mercy on Wheels: Muslims Giving Back’s Project: #Transform

Standard

Mercy on Wheels Rania

Allah states, within His Book, “Verily with hardship is ease.”.(Noble Qur’an: Chpt.94, V.5)

With that being said, we, as Muslims, always work hard to attain patience, in order attain the Help of Allah, the Creator/Lord of the Universe. But, also, those who help those who are in need, on any/all levels, empower themselves, will, as well, attain the Help of Allah, if we’re sincere to serve Him, as well as help others. So, that’s exactly what Muslims Giving Back is all about: serving Allah via serving our fellow Man.

And, one of the greatest examples of this service-thru-service is one of our most successful projects, to date: #Transform & #MercyOnWheels. These two respective intersecting projects involve the following:

1. Taking someone who is going through a tough time (impoverished, homeless, etc.) and treating them to an entire day of stress-free, work-free leisure: we take them shopping, take them to spas, etc.

2. We repair the homes of those who may not afford individual costs of home-repairs, along with (depending on te need) purchase furniture, food, clothes, etc.: whatever they may need for their homes.

3. Auto-repair/replacement: we assist people who have car-problems, by either getting their respectful vehicles repaired, or assist in completely replacing their old vehicles with newer ones.

These two respective projects, among all our other ventures, really change people’s lives for the better. And, we hope to only be those that Allah describes in the verse of His Noble-Book, state previously, as being “ease”. It is our sole-intent to be the vessels in which Allah uses, at all times, to be the reasons why people are able to rise above their respective tests, calamities, hardships, etc.

The necessity for those who have more to give to those who have less are t many of the standards which Muslims Giving Back stands by…Our signature Motto: #NoHumanLeftBehind represents our never-ending goal to be of service to the Creation of our Creator, at any time, in any place, with whatever capacity that we can muster. We, as Muslims, as Human beings, have been thus mandated, by Allah, to always be willing, able, etc., to be of ease, the ease, that Allah speaks about in the above verse from the Qur’an, for other experiencing hardship.

Muslims Giving Back’s annual project to spread Suicide Awareness & Prevention: #Walk4Life

Standard

Muslims Giving Back

Salam/Hello!!!

Allah says, in the Qur’an, “As a result of this, We have ordained upon the Children of Israel the following: ‘Whomever kills someone, whom has neither killed anyone, nor has cause Corruption, within the Earth, it’s just as though they’ve killed all of Humanity. Yet, whomever saves them, it’s just as though they’ve saved all of Humanity.’.”.(Noble Qur’an: Chpt.5, V.32)

The following are just some, of the many, startling facts about Suicide:

1. Suicide is attempted, every year, 1Million people within the United States, alone.

2. Nearly 40,000 Suicide attempts within the United States, alone, are actualized.

3. Women are 3-times more likely to attempt Suicide than Men.

As a Muslim, I take great interest in seeing Suicide come to an end. And, even if I never live to see it end, I owe it to Allah, the Creator/Lord of the Universe, to at least do my part, to help prevent at least one less person attempt Suicide. Every year, since 2011, I have made it my business to participate, as a walker, in the annual “Out Of The Darkness Overnight”, a Suicide Walk, sponsored by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, which helps to spread awareness, as well as raise monies, to help others from entering the road of no return, which is Suicide.

Muslims Giving Back, would like to inform you that our organization will be embarking upon our annual Suicide Awareness & Prevention project, known as #Walk4Life. 

This project aims to do the following:

1. Give a real face to the reality of Suicide.

2. To help raise Suicide-Awareness.

3. To establish an Islamic/Muslim presence, to allow Non-Muslims to know that the Muslim-Community cares about the issue of Suicide, and regards it religiously, as a momentous & tragic act.

4. To inform Muslims of the reality of Suicide within the actual Muslim-Community.

Now, on to what’s needed, for the success of this project:

1. Sponsorship/Money: We, at Muslims Giving Back, want to raise no less than $5,000, which is intended to cover registration, donations to the AFSP (American Foundation for Suicide Prevention), promotional paraphernalia (such as Wrist-Bands: MGB: #Walk4Life, T-Shirts: Muslims Giving Back: #Walk4Life, etc.)

2. Manpower: We need People to make announcements about this project, at Masajid, Schools, businesses, community-centers, etc.

3. Participants: We need People who are willing to actually come join us for this walk, scheduled for June 28th & 29th, 2014, in Philadelphia, Pa

Muslims Giving Back is going to be participating in the Out of the Darkness Overnight Suicide Walk, promoting Suicide Awareness & Prevention, in Philadelphia, Pa, on the 28th & 29th of June, 2014. It would be great if you all could join us in this walk. But, if you’re not able to, at least donate online to our profile donation page, or tell others in the Philadelphia area about this event. Suicide is very serious, especially among our youth. Please support us in our efforts to raise awareness about suicide.

The Out of the Darkness Overnight Suicide Walk is 16-18 mile trek, from sunset to sunrise. All proceeds benefit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, funding research, advocacy, survivor support, education, and awareness programs – both to prevent suicide and to assist those affected by suicide.
